FDIC Insurance Coverage

The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) is an independent agency created by the United States government to maintain stability and public confidence in the nation’s financial system. The FDIC protects depositors against the loss of their insured deposits if an FDIC-insured bank or savings association fails. FDIC insurance is backed by the full faith and credit of the United States government.

If a depositor’s accounts at one FDIC-insured bank or savings association total $250,000 or less, the deposits are fully insured. A depositor can have more than $250,000 at one insured bank or savings association and still be fully insured provided the accounts meet certain requirements. In addition, federal law provides for insurance coverage of up to $250,000 for certain retirement accounts.

No one has ever lost a penny of deposits insured by the FDIC. If you are concerned about the safety of your money, talk to us to get the straight facts. We’ll show you how to take full advantage to maximize your insurance coverage, including the CDARS advantage.
